On our way to Dr. Mahavir Raj Gelra next morning we passed the famous Shri Lakshmi Narajan Birla Tempel. We admired its beauty in the sunshine, and the pure whiteness of the fine marble. It was nearly unbelievable that two days ago we started for Jaipur in thick fog. Our Jaipur friends told us that fog is very rare in Jaipur. We enjoyed the clear light blue sky without a cloud. It was underlining the beauty of...

Republic Day was a lucky day for us. Dr. Sohan Lal Gandhi, President of Anuvrat Global Organization (Anuvibha) was in Jaipur and free for a talk. He received us in his house in Jaipur where we spoke nearly an hour. He was sitting at his desk, with many books surrounding him. It was apparent that he all had read. They were like friends watching what lessons he had taken from them and what he had realised...

Our first morning in Jaipur was Republic Day. The whole Bothra family was at home, and we used the opportunity for extended talks with our friends. There was no lack of topics, as we had not seen each other for quite some time. We took breakfast and lunch together, and shortly after lunch we had to leave for the first meeting in Pink City, how Jaipur very often is called because of the pink colour many...

Early on Monday morning we got up and went for Guru Darshan and bidding farewell. It is always very touching to enter the room where H.H. Acharyashree and the monks are in Pratikraman. The vibrations therein are uplifting, nothing more, and nothing less. A reality gains shape, which in the routine of daily life too often is forgotten. One might call it also the immaterial part of human existence where the...

Sunday Lecture was about to start. The audience mainly consisted of people from the city and nearby. Sadhvi shrees and Samani jis arrived. Some of them were already seated on the stage awaiting H.H. Acharya Mahapragya and Yuvacharya Mahashraman. The audience was silent. It was a vivid and light silence. The majority in the audience had come to be in the presence of H.H. Acharya Mahapragya and wanted to listen...

The last day of our Sri Dungargarh stay was a Sunday, which really honoured its name. A pale, but clearly visible sun rose above the roofs of the desert town, displaying a similar pale and wide sky area. Such sky never is seen elsewhere. The sun yet was not able to give much warmth. January is the coldest month in Rajasthan. Children enjoyed the morning drink together in their again empty street. They were...

Visit to Sadhvishrees Sadhvi Pramukha Mahashramani Kanakprabha Sadhvi Pramukha Mahashramani Kanakprabha together with a large group of Sadhvis was accommodated in a spacious building not far from Sethia house. The accommodation of Sadhvi Pramukha ji for Maryada Mahotsav always is a challenge for the organising committee. Most important priorities are small distance to H.H. Acharya Mahapragya ji's headquarter...

Visit to Samanijis It was now the right time to visit the Samanis at Oswal Panchayat Bhawan, which was not far from Terapanth Bhawan where H.H. stayed with the monks. For Guru Darshan in Sri Dungargarh the Samanis had to walk about ten minutes. Munis, Sadhvis, and Samanis as disciples of H.H. have special times for Guru Darshan, either when they attend the lectures H.H. Acharya Mahapragya in spite of being in...

Dinner@Sethias Time hurried away. Hardly we had left the Samanis, the next host was receiving us. And how he was receiving us for dinner. About 17 members of the Sethia family were giving us an incredible warm welcome. The 7 young members of the family were vibrating with life energy and made us feel very happy. Coming from a country where young people are in the minority, it was a wonderful surprise to meet so...
